Each year, over 500,000 people have back surgery in the US. Although in some cases it's necessary to have surgery for back pain, the fact is that if you can prevent this type of invasive procedure, you're often better off.
Frank Bendiks, DC, PC is here to make sure that people in Naperville, IL have a healthy, non-surgical option for back pain. We've helped many people recover from back pain without the need for surgery.
There are many reasons to avoid unnecessary medical treatments: Surgeries often result in a longer recovery time and additional complications, neither of which is an acceptable scenario. Fortunately, as one study has found, chiropractic care may actually keep you out of the operating room entirely.
In this paper, 1,885 workers with back injuries were evaluated over a three year period. When the workers first sought treatment with a surgeon, over 42 percent wound up having back surgery. For those who saw only a chiropractor, only 1.5 percent had surgery!
These findings imply that chiropractic care can help you recover from back pain without surgical treatments.
